AT&T’s fastest 5G network is now available for consumers, not just businesses

By Todd Haselton

AT&T announced on Thursday that its mmWave “5G+” network is now available to everyone. The launch coincides with the release of Samsung’s new Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra phones on Friday, which will use the faster network.

Until now, AT&T had let only businesses use the fastest mmWave network and restricted consumers to its slower but more widespread 5G low band network. This means AT&T is now competing more aggressively against Verizon and T-Mobile, which also have mmWave networks available to all customers.

If you’re shopping for a new Samsung phone on AT&T, keep in mind that the regular Galaxy S20 only runs on the slower 5G network and doesn’t support mmWave 5G on AT&T.
